Scammers don't create adware just to annoy you, and every adware has exact goals. But, if you believe that the description of this software is true is really useful - you're wrong. Commonly, the specification of every undesired tool states that it will be highly helpful. 99% of advertising software promise to assist in web-browsing. Search for deals, discounts and sales online, help in the download of recent movies, music or games and observing the activity of friends in Facebook - these are the features that the majority of advertising tools promise to carry out. The most important thing you need to do if you want to download some program - to figure out, is it really useful? In fact, the goal of hackers is to convince the user that their software performs something that can't be monitored. The "faster", "better" or "safer" search on the Internet is a excellent sample of suchlike function, as these parameters are very vague and almost impossible to observe. So, adware are completely useless, and is just consuming space in the PC's memory? No, they have one main task and it is to cheat you and to earn thousands of dollars from online advertising.

Inexperienced PC operators say that most of undesired programs have no distinct goal. It's pretty reasonable, didn't it? Malware developer thinks about an operator that is struggling to delete his hazardous program, and the feeling is really good! Actually, all viruses have their feature, and this function helps scammers to obtain money. It is hard to understand why adware shows so many ads, but when you understand it, it appears pretty plain. All this advertisement is shown to make money on referrals. Simply said, advertising services are paid based on the number of clicks done on the pop-up, or the amount of referrals from banner to the site. All advertising software's efforts are aimed at persuading you click on the ads. Actually if you don't take interest in hacker's suggestions - the click might still be done, in order to close an uncomfortable intrusive banner. Every referral is worth the money and based on the type of advertising it can count from 0.1 to 5 cents and sometimes even more. Here we see how quantity overcomes quality, as swindlers create hundreds of low quality viruses that flood us with annoying ads. Trusting man can think that suchlike advertisement is trustworthy, and look for something entertaining among these propositions, making tens of referrals every day. Big AV-software vendors and malware-fighting communities receive thousands of complaints on Windowsguard.today, so swindlers are doing pretty good profit on it.

We know two main ways of adware spread: the placing on the malicious web-pages and bundled installation with free programs. Unwanted sites are very easy to identify: they appear on the last positions of search, and they intrusively suggest to purchase something. In addition, pay attention to the notifications that your browser and anti-virus show. To protect yourself from the infection through the second method, you must closely supervise the installation of all programs. Installation in bundles means that adware is added to installers of free tools. The installation program is modified to suggest you to get extra tools in addition to the needed one. In many variants you just cannot decline the process, and in some - you don't even see that you're installing something wrong. Naturally, all tools except the desired one will be meaningless or even hazardous. According to this, when you see the option between “recommended installation” and “installation for experienced users” – choose the second variant. Keep this in mind each time you install something - and your machine will be noticeably cleaner.
